I just found this photo on a social network site and had to snag it. It’s a wonderful example of what is possible for every addict and alcoholic in terms of beginning a new clean and sober life. We can begin again. This photo, I believe, embodies perfectly the tangible and available potential we all possess – that is just waiting to be embraced. Addicts and alcoholics don’t have to stay sick.
Our roots may not renew, and we will always own our pasts, but our futures are for us alone to design. It is absolutely, unequivocally possible for addicts and alcoholics to launch anew.
